No previous programming skills are required. Upon graduation, students are eligible for paid internships with our corporate sponsors.
Code Platoon is an approved VET TEC training provider through the Department of Veteran Affairs. In-Person students may also use their GI Bill. All students are eligible to apply for general scholarships once enrolled in the program.
Module 1 (Weeks 1-4): Computer science / programming fundamentals
Module 2 (Weeks 5-6): The World Wide Web
Module 3 (Week 7): Data Science
Data science is an increasingly popular sector of technology, powering Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Using industry-recognized Python libraries including NumPy, Pandas, Jupyter Notebook, and publically available datasets, students will learn the basics of data science and be able to get a leg up in their junior developer interviews.
Module 4 (Weeks 8-10): Amazon Web Services
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is cloud-based hosting for modern technology companies. These companies generally look for people certified in AWS technologies to get their product online. Code Platoon has been accepted as an AWS Academy - an organization that Amazon has vetted with their curriculum. Students will be trained to take and hopefully pass the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam, receiving an industry recognized certification.
Module 5 (Weeks 11-14): Creating Applications
This module will teach students how to create modern-day web applications, including database design and integration, web routing, and the Model View Controller framework through a Python framework called Django. They will learn to integrate the ReactJS framework on top of their Django application and deploy that using Amazon Web Services technologies. This is the most important module as it is where students learn the skills that employers will expect them to have on the first day of the job and they will see how all the skills that they have learned in the first 4 modules come together to build a full application.

"Hard work, but they don't call it a bootcamp for nothing!"
Code Platoon is an amazing resource for veterans and veteran spouses. The program and instructers were top tier, but their commitment to make the camp accessible to any vet/spouse who wants to join is what impressed me most. We were taught industry standard...

Pros: Learned a lot in a short time, prepared to apply for some high paying positions, one lesson builds on the previous one, awesome instructors and students and teacher assistance. Lots of materials to prepare for the application and the class itself.... Read More Can't really think of any cons.

"Awesome Experience - I recommend all veterans to apply"
Code Platoon is honest when they tell you it will be difficult, but you’re stacking a whole lot of knowledge into a few months. Regardless, it was the best decision of my life. I went from level 0 knowledge to being able to create fullstack applications,... Read More and now have an amazing apprenticeship as a software engineer. The instructors were awesome, the curriculum aligns with the industry, and I made some of the best friends I have - all while being remote. You’re going to have to put in work, that’s a given. But it was a blast and I couldn’t have imagined a better experience. Not only do you learn A LOT, but you also get to meet industry professionals and mentors to help with interviews, your resume, and your learning styles. Then upon graduating if you didn’t participate in the internship program, you get resources from their career services professionals to assist in the job hunt. This isn’t a bootcamp where they give you some online tasks then that’s it - there’s lecture, assessments, projects, 2 instructors, and a plethora of TAs you can talk to both during the day and after class
Code platoon was the first time in a classroom setting that I truly felt I was being taught the skills I would leave that room and use in a workplace. I have a BS in Electrical Engineering and I feel that I learned more practical knowledge in the 14 weeks... Read More in this course that I did in the 4 years earning that degree. The staff and instructors push the students to better themselves, continuously evolve the curriculum with feedback from their students and are a group of people who genuinely have a desire to help their students succeed. From Basic coding to Full Stack Application Development to resume writing and interview prep this class made what was a stressful separation from the military and gave me the tools that have landed me at the beginning of a promising career. Thank you Code Platoon! The staff are by far the most genuinely positive and supportive group of people I have ever had the pleasure of being mentored by. Learning Software Development is a skill that requires a student to feel comfortable asking questions and this staff has created an environment where there truly are no "bad questions" just learning opportunities.
"Military Veterans looking to step into the tech world"
Code Platoon's Bootcamp is a non-profit organization designed to help military veterans or their spouses transition into the tech industry. Code Platoon's cohort offers plenty of options to help pay for tuition such as the Post 9/11 GI Bill, VET TEC and... Read More other scholarships. The staff and TAs are very knowledgeable on the subject and offers flexible courses to help fit your schedule. Once enrolled, you must treat this cohort like a full time job if you want to succeed. The staff and TAs are willing to help you succeed both during the cohort and post. I cannot recommend any other coding bootcamp other than Code Platoon if you're a veteran or a veteran spouse.
Attending Code Platoon was a great experience. The instructors and executive director are always looking to make the program better with each cohort and it shows in the resulting course. As you would expect, the pace of learning is very quick and sometime... Read More hard to keep up with. But, there are lots of people willing to help. My cohort of 30 students had 2 instructors, 4 intern TAs (that were in class with us), and 9 volunteer TAs (for after hours). By the end, I felt confident about being able to write a full-stack application.
An extremely professional organization, dedicated to making every day of the course useful and productive. Course material is 90% learning things you'll need to get through interviews then hit the ground running and 10% "here is the world of coding" so...
